We'll be getting into this in a bit more detail, but essentially, it's the far future, there's a feudal system in place, with all the complexities and fun that implies, aliens are scum but useful scum, for the most part , and the suns are starting to go out. That's right, the stars are going out. The Church of the Pancreator is blaming it on mankind's Hubris yes, they capitalise Hubris, and Truth, and other such fun things Harry Harrison would mock , the Nobles are getting what they can, while they can and ignoring the problem , the Guilds are doing much the same while some of them secretly think if the Republic was brought back, it'd be magically all better , and various other groups are just living their lives normally.
Alustro, Prayerbitch of Destiny We begin the core book with the usual fiction that's so popular in RPG books, probably ever since White Wolf started to emo-it-up with theirs. We meet Alustro, a semi-heretical young man He's an Eskatonic. What's an Eskatonic? We'll get to it whose uncle happens to be an Archbishop That's Archbishop of the Orthodox church, not the space-heretics.
It's longwinded, not brilliantly written, but still, it gets across several important facts, and the character of Alustro a pussy : - Alustro serves his lady well, even though he's a filthy space heretic.
That's right, a quest. Let's concentrate on this last point. Essentially, there's some really ancient stuff left behind by an ancient race maybe races, plural called the Annunaki. One of the things they left behind was something called The Gargoyle. It sometimes gives people visions, and looks like the Sphinx, only weirder. Essentially, it gave them visions, and they're trying to piece them together, because maybe it's important!
Forget logic here, believe me, people don't operate on logic in this setting.

He then rambles on for two or three pages of double column 10 or point, about things that are going to be explained to you in the setting section anyways. Then he tells his uncle how much he misses him, and, despite the fact he's a dirty heretic being chased by heretic hunting ultra-orthodox types, angry nobles, and thugs along with his companions , he's going to come visit sometime and give unca a big ol' broclasp. Welcome to Fading Suns. If you want to read this text, and all the other intro fiction dealing with Alustro, you're in luck, because Holistic Design the guys who made this awesome and crazy game made it all into a pretty pair of PDFs for your free enjoyment.
Here's the first Next time, I start dealing with the actual setting! Well, while this discussion is fascinating, all I'm going to say is that people are going to side with whatever side of the theme White Wolf went for with oMage essentially Idealism v Rationalism , and fuck what White Wolf decided Idealism As far as CtD goes, there's a distinct element of rose-tinted glasses there, as the serfdom thing shows. But now, for something completely different.
The artwork continues to impress, but So, once we've gotten Alustro's whining out of the way he only rarely stops being a pussy , we get to the introduction. Take, for example, the intro. Well, let's see Yue, I can definitely appreciate your friend not wishing to have a bad part of his career showcased, but, er I sorta already did. Still, now is not the time for things like this, now is the time to explore the alternate history of: Fading Suns: History 'At the Beginning' to 'Fall of the First Republic' Now, for this section, I'm going to be introducing a new feature: The Chain of Derivation.
To be fair, however, it also most likely inspired some things, so, where it's applicable, I'll stick a derivation after the Fading Suns one. Having gotten through the deliberately inspirational intro, we're now introduced to the setting. This chapter contains the broad history, detail on the major power blocs and some minor ones , and a little bit about the [scum] aliens, where appropriate.
Not surprisingly, it kicks off with Prehistory Oh, come on, you didn't seriously think humans came first or anything, did you? Nope, long before humanity, and even most of the other races existed, there were the Annunaki. They came first, and they were two species. Hrm, already sounds familiar, but let's roll with it. They built themselves up, influenced some evolutions for the lolz, made the jumpgates, and then conveniently and promptly killed themselves off in a massive intergalactic war over which side you butter scones over or something.
This latter name comes from alien legends, for their myths speak of two races of gods or elder beings who often warred against each other.

One race protected mortals, while the other harassed them. They made this a full pager, to emphasise the scale.
The Sinful Stars
So,eventually humanity conquered the solar system, and, lo and behold, they'd formed their one world government from corporations and capitalism. They obviously made this unity through strict control and removing personal freedoms much like your office's HR department , but this all went to shit several times over when they found the first jumpgate. See, the first problem came when pilots went through the jumpgate: They got religion. Not the controllable kind, either, the kind based off addictive substances and positive reinforcement.
See, the Jumpgates make you trip balls in the most delicious way, and the pilots, obviously, wanted to trip balls a fair amount once they'd gotten hit. This pseudo-religion was called Sathra, after the word some pilots claimed they heard while they were off visiting Major Tom and Ziggy Stardust. This term somehow survived four or five millennia and two collapses oops, spoilers! Then they sent off loads of colonists, and the First Republic expanded.

Which led to the second problem. Y'see, various ethnic groups found out how to build their own drives, often sans Sathra Blockers, and made their way out on their own.
